Is this good carpet fitting?

    Hi all I would really appreciate some feedback about a job I’ve had done yesterday. Carpets were fitted to my loft conversion. I think that the carpet should have extended out of the room and been attached under the lip of the top step. Please would you look at my pics and give me your expert advice. Can this be remedied if so how?

    Oh dear. It looks like it’s only been measured to the doorway. You could put a bar in and have another bit of carpet over the step. The option to use a bar or run it through should of been discussed at the estimate stage.

    If there was enough carpet and he’s just cut it off and left it like that it’s just lazy

    If it was being finished there he could of at least used a single doorplate to finish it instead of cutting it wonky and securing it with drawing pins

    Maybe he assumed you were going to carry on the landing carpet up to the doorway

    Thanks Merit, there was enough carpet and he didn’t discuss it with me before cutting it that way.

    If he does put in a bar/ double bar would the carpet on the step-side of the bar keep pulling away from the gripper?

    Thanks Paul, we didn’t have a discussion before hand and there was plenty of carpet.

    It'll be fine if he fits it correctly but a bit of spray on the threshold and around the step won't hurt.

    Yeah exactly. Some jobs have bars under the door some don’t. As long as it’s fitted correctly it will be fine

    Are you having a different carpet on the stairs and that 1/2 landing.
